A.C.C. 13.2 ... Morning Thoughts ...

So what is "Airelon's Challenge Chronicles"? You can find a description by clicking here.

I thought I would offer a few thoughts this morning on the state of the markets.

Silver: Especially after yesterday's Challenge Project entry, a few folks have asked about my silver, which, is of course separate from the A.C.C. portfolio My entire strategy for my personal bullion is up on A.C.C. 13, and outlined. The Dollar fell lower, Silver climbed higher ... so in other words ... Dan still has his silver.

My entire attitude towards the silver market is not one of entering a trade long or short ... but of exiting a profitable position. I'll trail my exit, and we'll see what I get. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see the Dollar rally somewhat.

On a related topic to yesterdays issue, when I sell it, I'm selling it all through a second party account, and another address all together ... but I plan on reporting the sale to the I.R.S. (Never, ever mess around with trying to hide stuff from the government. Not ever.)

Trades Yesterday? I saw no entrances. Orange Juice moved lower, but again ... I couldn't see an entrance.

U.S. Dollar: It slid lower as I thought, but I missed my entrance, and I didn't want to chase it, especially at these levels. I was correct, but no trade, so no money made or lost.

Crude Oil: We've rallied again this morning, which is that large channel I talked about. Still continuing to watch it, because although this year the market can move at any time .. typically, we have this channel last until March 15th, at about which time, we rocket higher.

Sugar: We just moved higher and higher yesterday. But I haven't scratched the trade yet. In fact, overnight, we've moved lower.

Which is a pattern setup.

So now, if we rally? And then we form some congestion and consolidate underneath the recent .2950 high? Then yeah ... I'd look to short on a break to the downside. So again ... it's just watching and waiting for the right pattern to enter a trade. I'll be patient, and wait.

I might short it on a break lower than support that's formed at 8:40 pm. But the tape will have to be right. I've set an alert on Sugar at 28.59

Orange Juice: Very similar situation to Sugar. We moved lower, but I saw no way to enter a trade. We rallied a bit, and I'm watching that for a trade this morning on the short side. At the moment, the spread is just too wide. If we rally, consolidate and congest ... then yes, I'd be looking to short. But if we just break lower? I'm not sure if I'd be comfortable breaking to the downside on the last 20 minutes support. But I might. I'll just have to watch the tape and see.
